THE 1921 COMMANDANT
E. THE SENIORS,
have striven to submit
to the public a vivid
picture of G. M. C. life, not
in an artistic manner, but pre-
senting the picturesqueness of
our daily life as it really occurs.
We hope that this volume will
be a source of pleasure to
those of us who find time in
the turmoil of the Golden Fu-
ture to turn once again over

Colonel Alfriend finds it easy to be pleasant
When everything flows along like a song,
But he's a man worth while; for he's a man with a smile
even when things go wrong.
Here's to Major Edwards with his ever ready smile
Who always makes us realize that life is worth the while.
May he prosper, but never fail to see
How much he was appreciated during his stay at G. M. C.
Here's to Major Russell who is strictly in it.
He doesn't loose his head for a single minutC)
Unfailing courtesy for young and old
Even when lessons must be very oft told.
Here's to "Baby" Rolston, as modest as a maid
With untiring patience, but always unafraid
Of giving us long lessons to expand our brains says he
May we find a way of expansion save thru Trigonometry?
Here's to Major Morrison with his most sarcastic air
A historical atmosphere surrounds him every^vhere.
And when it comes to temperaments, he is of the very best
But seems to think our "salvation" lies in a History Test.
Here's to Cabell and Martin with their knowledge of things scientific
They keep their pupils ever scared by forcing them to be specific.
May they find in this world with its many funny little turns
That there are many things more interesting than studying bugs and worms?
Here's to Coach Bonner who's an athlete through and through,
And it's the height of his ambition to make us athletes too,
He works with untiring effort morning, night, and noon.
And we are sure that good results he will reap, very, very soon.
Here's to Mrs. Reese who came to us this year.
To take the place of Miss Ennis whom we all loved so well.
Then let us say to you dear friend that everyone may hear.
The love and respect that is borne her, neither tongue nor pen can tell.
Here's to Captain Cousley and "Sarg" Reese with courtly air and mien
In military matter, may they ever rule supreme?

Once his friend; always! — That's Bishop. He hails from that ancient city of
Sparta but has a very keen interest in Augusta. We wonder why.
Although "Bish" has only been here one year, he has made an enviable record
in all that he has undertaken, and by his Gold Star we can readily see that he is a

Solid is a good old pal anyway you take him. He has been at G. M. C. since
entering the first grade, and during that time he has made many friends — but no
enemies. He has become unusually popular this year especially with the Co-Eds of
the Senior Class.
He is the possessor of an unusually good voice, and many times at night he may
be heard with his friends serenading the girls of "The Promised Land." He serenades
until he sees aroused sentinel coming with his "gattelin Gun."

Shawy hails from the noble city of Jesup, and is one of the best, as well as one
of the most popular officers at G. M. C. He has many friends which he has won by
his willingness to always give anyone a helping hand.
In spite of his popularity, etc., he is a big brag, and his chief occupation seems
to be bumming. Shavvy, however, is not a woman hater; for he DOES believe in the
women, and has never been known to miss any of the dances around this Burg.

Robert needs no introduction; for he is so widely known that the class would
seem incomplete without him. He is the personification of good nature and the pos-
sessor of an equal amount of fun and studiousness. We have great hopes for Robert ;
so don't be surprised to find his name written with Galileo, Newton, Watt, and other
great scientists. He is an all 'round fellow and G- M. C. wishes for him the best of
Last but not least, he is the noble and dashing First Lieutenant oi Company "B."

"Billy" is one of those rare boys that are gifted with an unusually bright intellect.
He was elected by the student body as the most intellectual cadet and it is unnecessary
to say that he stands well in his class. Also he is a silver-tongued orator and some
day we expect him to rank with the world's foremost statesmen. Every afternoon
"Billy" can be seen out around the "Country Store" talking to the G. N. I. girls as
they go by. He is popular in school and much is expected of him in the days to come.

"Precious jewels are found in small packages." This is certainly true of Bill;
for although he kept hidden from us until this year just how much he was capable
of accomplishing in various forms of athletics, we now fully realtee what a jewel he
is, and all the members of the Class of 1920-21 will be proud in years to come to tell
the world that Bill was one of their classmates.

We are sure, by his record at G. M- C, that in a few years Ole Lady will outrival
Edison and other great scientists. He likes all his studies but LOVES his Physics.
His hobby is collecting pipes. At present he has only sixteen, but by the first of
June he hopes to have doubled that number.

Glycerine has been with us two years and in this time he has won a place in the
hearts of every one of us who know him well. He is a quiet, dignified, studious, easy-
going, and — last but not least — a good looking fellow.

Mat has the distinction of having been at G. M. C. longer than most of us. He
always makes friends with the members of the entire student body, and therefore
his friends are numberless. He possesses great dramatic ability, and has shown himself
to be quite an addition to the teams in the different forms of athletics.

Carlos is one of the human beings called "little but loud." When you first meet
him, your impression is that he is a very quiet boy, and he is until you see him on
the parade ground in charge of his company. Then your ideas are changed and you
say, "Gosh, but he's loud!"
Carlos is one of the most popular boys at G. M. C. He seems to be a "Woman
Shunner," but he has one eye fastened on G. N. & L and unless something happens,
as long as he remains at G- M. C. his eyes will be on "The Promised Land."
He is full of pep and determination and when he starts out to do a thing you
may say that thing is accomplished.
"He that hesitates is lost."

Bob has grown rich at G. M. C. by putting out hard labor in the establishment of
Tingle & Mikell. If he finds it impossible to make a living and grow rich selling
weiners, perhaps he could get a job in the movies. Everyone at G. M. C. remembers
his production of the part of Uncle Sam in the Pageant "King Cotton."
He has made many friends at G. M. C. and is noted for his fondness of going
up on "The Hill" and viewing "The Promised Land."
Bob is known by his wit and humor. When in a tight place he always comes out
smiling. In spite of his wit, he loves his books and has the distinction of being a
Gold Star Man.

If you have ever happened to be down at the "Y" Hut when the Basket Ball team
is practicing, and have heard a voice above all others, yelling "Hey-ya," then you
have heard and perhaps seen "Little Top."
His hobby seems to be playing Basket Ball, but he is very fond of visiting "The
Although this is his first and last year at G. M. C, he has made a host of friends
who will always remember him. We are sure the girls of G. M. C. as well as ofl
G. N. & L C. will miss him more than words can express.

Mary has a sweet face and a loving disposition which manifests itself in the writing
of Love lyrics. His genial disposition and happy smile have gained for him a host
of friends at Milledgeville, and the general regret now is that he seeks a broader
field of learning.

Bob is a boy of stern character and a winning personality. Although this is his
first and last year at G. M. C. he has won many friends and companions.
At school he might be termed a "Woman Hater," but when you see him in his
old home town of Richmond, Va., and a certain Auburn nearby, it is very probable that
you would say "wonders will never cease."
His greatest ambition seems to be to own a peanut stand on the corner of Wayne
and Hancock streets. Perhaps when his ambition is realized he will get his fill of
"parched goobers" but not before.

"Pitt" is a boy of moods. Any mood you strike him in, though, you will be sure
to like him. His hobby seems to be dancing, and he is to be found at every such
occasion around town.
"On with the dance! Let joy be unconfined."

Helen has the distinction of having been at G. M. C. since her Sub-Freshman
year, and during that time she has won a score of friends and admirers. She has
that wonderful gift of not worrying about her troubles but takes life as it comes.
There is nothing too good for her to do for those whom she loves, but MY — how she
does "sat upon" the others.

Bill came to us early in the year from Marion Institute. He won the name of
"hard-boiled" and "woman-hater" when he first came to G. M. C, but those names
have long since been cast aside for he has proved exactly the opposite in both cases.
He has made a good record for himself in both school room and parade ground. He never
pushes friendship, but when anyone shows, in the slightest manner that the path
is clear he at once steps in. Our advice to all is to cultivate Bill's friendship — for he
is a friend worth having.

Nell is one of those conscientious girls that everybody admires. She passes over
the petty troubles of life with such calmness that we look on and wonder where our
senses are. However, beneath this calm exterior is a ripple of mischief which often
breaks forth when she is with those who know her best. Nell is always ready and
willing to help a friend in need. She is considered one of the smartest students of
the class, being one of the few to win a "gold star." She will long be remembered
with love and respect by the members of the class of '21.

'"Bonnie" believes in liberty and not being confined in a school room five
out of each week; for this reason he takes from three to five days off each
for the purpose of being FREE. But when he does come to school, he is
witli all his heart, pays strict attention to his instructor, and seems to have no
wish as being free.
During the time he was at school, however, he won many friends that
remember him no matter where they go.

Fat is known and liked by everyone at G. M C. Not only is he popular around
school, but even with the girls around town and all the G. N. & L girls know him.
But Fat, unlike the other commissioned officers, does not spend much of his time in
sight of "The Promised Land." Fat says it is "The Promised Land" all right, but
will do no good to stand on the hill and look over into "The Forbidden Domain."
Fat should make a success in life as he started out successfully by selling weiners
at the Canteen. If he is half as successful in life as he was at G. M. C. he will never
Regardless of what comes along, Fat always greets you with a smile and a word

Clyde belongs to that class of humans designated as dual personalities. Among
strangers she assumes a dignified air that astonishes those who know her best, but when
with her class friends she is always jolly and thinking some way to get into more mis-
chief. She always manages to treat trouble lightly, giving everyone a cheeifui word to
help them on their way.

Wilbur has established quite a reputation while at G. M. C. He has the ability
to make friends wherever he goes, and he surely has a host of them at G. M. C, and
he also has a number on the "Hill." Wilbur was one of G. M. C's. foremost football
players. His ambition is to marry the "one" girl, "build a sweet little nest, and let
the rest of the world go by."
Wilbur is known for his jolly good humor and ability to take things as they come.
He is the most popular, officer at G. M. C. and is a born leader of men, which he!
shows both in his conduct and in his carriage. Wilbur is "Hale Fellow Well Met"
and will long be remembered at G. M. C.

Dick is one of the most popular boys at G. M. C. and is also well known on the
out-skirts of "The Promised Land." He is one of the few so-called timid boys at
G. M. C. especially, in a crowd, but when a senior girl faints, he is right there to
catch her. Ask him.
Dick seems to be a leader of boys. He has this peculiarity which makes him all
the more popular among the student body.
"/ have never seen his like; there lives no greater leader."
are always some
recorded for the
Senior Class "21."
N the records of human achievements, there
events worthy of note, events that should be
benefit of future generations, and it is always with such an in-
terest that the history of mankind is written. This history has
passed from one generation to another and, accumulating down
through the ages to the present day, furnishes us one of the most profitable
forms of study, a study which has for him who pursues its courses good
advice proved by our predecessors. That we should profit by their mistakes
was the wish of our forefathers.
It is our desire in writing this history of the Class of '21 that our fellow
students may see our mistakes and profit by them. And, if by this record of
our achievements as well as of our mistakes, one man is benefitted and is
brought to realize the necessity of applying himself in every undertaking, our
effort will not have been entirely in vain.
Although we have made more than our share of mistakes, we have also
accomplished many things worthy of commendation. The loyalty shown
when in our Sophomore year the Old Barracks burned was very commend-
able. We take with satisfaction the credit that is our due, but would not
hesitate to direct attention to the wonderful spirit shown by the entire stu-
dent body at that time. The spirit that has always kept G. M. C. at the top
was keenly felt by every member of our class, and though it seemed hard at
times to weather the cold North winds in our tents, which quickly sprung
up, we found consolation in the fact that we were not here only for the bet-
terment of ourselves, but that we were here that G. M. C. might live and
that her spirit might always be felt in dear old Georgia.
In our endeavors we have always put forth that determination and have
always had that enthusiastic attitude which are so necessary to success. And
we are proud to record that we have enjoyed a good measure of success in
every line of college endeavor. Our classmates have represented our class
as leaders in not only the Academic work, but also in the Military Depart-
ment, and in the athletics of the school.
Our class is composed of capable students, but one may safely say that
with a little more application there would be many more who would be
among the first. However, we have a number of very remarkable students,
who, it is certain, will reflect credit upon the teachers and the institution
wherever they choose to further their education, or, if they choose to enter
the business world, will show ability far above the average. And just here
we wish to congratulate them on their success. Every member of the present
class is proud of his affiliations with them. Certainly we have been bettered
by their associations.
Members of our class have done unusually well in the Military Depart-
ment of the College. Even in our Junior year, we had among our number
four commissioned officers, as well as many non-commissioned officers. To
these and to all who have this year excelled we wish to express our pleasure
in having had as our class-mates, officers and non-commissioned officers who
have always discharged their duties in a manner most commendable, who by
their devotion and faithfulness to duty, as well as by their kindness, have won
In the College Athletics, our class has made a very creditable showing,
and we are proud of the fact that we have been so well represented in the
various forms of play. Our members have shown that they were not only in
perfect condition, but also that they possessed superb physiques. They have
exhibited skill in the games in which they have participated. We feel that
the praise that has been theirs is ours also, for they have always been devoted
to their class. In the future, we wish for them the greatest success possible,
and hope that they will always be praised as they have here, for their skill-
fulness of play and cleanliness of sportmanship.
History usually includes the leaders of great causes that have affected
mankind, and whose great deeds have been told from one generation to an-
other, until now we have a valuable record that tells us of their valiant deeds.
In our history of the Senior Class we wish to tell of our feeling of admira-
tion, and we must say, appreciation of the ceaseless and untiring efforts of
our leaders, who by their inexhaustible patience, by their cheering smiles and
by their guiding leadership have lead us over the difficult spots of our col-
lege career. It is with deep gratitude and increasing admiration that we
refer to our leaders, the instructors, and say to them they have our heartfelt
thanks. We wish them to know that it is our purpose to so live that their
efforts will not have been in vain.
To the girls of our class, the cadets wish to express their great pleasure
in having had them as classmates, classmates who by their continued faith-
fulness and devotion to duty, by their kindness, by their nobleness and by
their love have entirely won the heart of every boy.
We hope that the spirit that has moved us on so many occasions, the
spirit of knowledge, of truth, of righteousness, the spirit that will win success
and happiness in the world, will always be the spirit of dear old G. M. C,
and that it will thus continue to instill itself in the hearts of American man-
hood and womanhood. If this hope be realized, then G. M. C, the school of
our hearts, will continue to prosper as she has in the past. Then there will
be a cleaner manhood, a purer womanhood and a greater America.

Senior Class Prophec}^
Ah! It has indeed been many years since I embarked upon the Sea of
Life, leaving my college days behind me, to wrestle with the world and with-
stand it's trials and tribulations. But such is every man's lot in life, so I,
like others, had to begin my task and face the cares and worries of life.
Having retired from business, with very little to trouble my mind, I
naturally wished to know the success of my fellow classmates at G. M. C.
Many cities and countries had I visited in hopes of procuring a little infor-
mation concerning their careers, but thus far my efforts had been in vain.
I was sitting on the piazza of my hotel in Calcutta, conversing with my
guide, when my eyes beheld the most curious human being (if he can be so
called) I had ever seen. My guide, seeing my curiosity, ventured to en-
lighten me concerning this odd specimen of man.
"That is the wonderful Men-Kaura, Sahib. Have you not heard of the
great feats he has accomplished with his crystal sphere?"
The guide showed no little surprise when I confessed I had never met
this noted sage and man of wonders.
"Ah then sahib, you must do so at once, we will visit his establishment
this afternoon; for perhaps he can give you the information you desire re-
garding your classmates."
At four o'clock, we entered this strange creature's abode. My guide
spoke several words to him, he nodded his head in assent, and conducted us
into a small room. The room was draped with curtains of fantastic color. It
was lighted with green lights which produced a weird effect upon us making
cold chills run down our spines. I composed myself however, by stroking
my whiskers, and was ready to meet any onslaught that might take place.
Men-Kaura then drew back a curtain and there resting before my eyes
was a large, shining, transparent ball as clear as crystal.
"And what does the sahib wish to know?" asked Men-Kaura to my guide
in a thunderous voice that caused a peculiar sensation in the bottom of my
"He wishes. Wise Sage, to know the success his classmates at G. M. C.,
have attained in life."
Men-Kaura nodded his head again, and, turning toward the crystal ball,
made many mystic signs, and spoke in low tones that were indistinguishable
to the ear.
Suddenly! A bright red flame loomed before my eyes; Men-Kaura
beckoned to us. I drew close to him, and bending my head low gazed with
open mouth and wondering eyes upon the scene before me. There standing
before me was our class president, J. Berner Tingle, who, with beaming coun-
tenance and bright smiles, introduced to us Lovick Alfriend, one of our most

entitled, "Why Rivers Do Not Flow Uphill." It is a very interesting book
(so he says) and is sold for the nominal sum of ten cents. He is now labor-
ing upon the unaccountable phenomina, "Why the U. S. Went Dry." (We
sincerely hope he can find the root of evil and remedy it).
Banks, 0. 0. : Olin is now a professional boxer, having been tutored
by Battling Minns. He is having a hard time finding some one to box with
since he knocked out Jack Johnson.
L. R. Bennett: Lawrence, (contrary to popular opinion), has achieved
a great name and high social position in Africa. It is said he has been seen
with the noted African chief Golash, and has often paid calls upon his daugh-
ter, Dinah, who is desperately in love with him. He is commander-in-chief
of the kings army, having defeated one squad of the Abyssinians with only
1000 men. It was a remarkable victory.
R. H. Betts: Robert is still running the ladies wild just like he used to
when he was at G. M. C. He is married and has eight children. Not all are
his however; for the third time he married he married a widow with five
children. He has been very successful in business, each of his wives having
been worth at least a half million.
H. L. Bryan: Harold is now an advertising agent for E. E. Bell Dry
Goods Store. His mode of advertising is unique. His special line is ladies'
ready-to-wear clothing. He carries live models with him for exhibition. It
is needless to say he has met with an overwhelming success in business.
A. B. Coggin: Belk as you all know followed his natural vocation, i. e.,
oratory. Having completed Yale at the age of twenty-three, he became a
lawyer. He was later sent to Congress and is now Secretary of State. It is
thought that next election he will run for president of the United States. We
all have great confidence in Belk and are glad to know he is meeting with
W. T. Fowler : Bill is now in the Navy. It is reported he leads a rather
wild life, having a girl in every port on the globe. He speaks seven lan-
guages and twelve dialects. Next year he is considering teaching Chinese to
the Ethiopians of South Africa. We prophesy a great success for him; for
we all knew Bill well at school.
C. P. Gleaton: Gleaton is now teaching physics and rhetoric in the
university of Mongolia. Before he became a professor, he tried the experi-
ment of "raising hell" in Siberia in order to increase the temperature sev-
eral degrees, but we are sorry to say he was taken for a bolshevik and con-
sequently had to abandon this noble idea. We sincerely hope he will be
able to complete this work in years to come.
Bennett Gilmore: Bennett is a very successful electrician. He is
classed with Edison on account of having invented many electrical appli-
ances. His greatest invention is a small machine which transforms cigar-
ette ducks into the most delicious tobacco that can be imagined. We are
sorry to say he has produced only 946 of these machines and that all of these
he uses for his own private necessities. He is thinking seriously of selling
his patent to the DOG and CHAPMAN TOBACCO CONCERN, Milledge-
Mat Hines: Mat, was very successful at Tech, having led his class
and making a record that has been unprecedented in the history of the school.
He is now an engineer for the Baldwin County Sewer Company. A beau-
tiful suit of clothes has been furnished free. He not only lays sewer pipes,
but also works the roads. He gets his board free, and seems to be very con-
tented with life.
C. H. Horne: Carlos has married a beautiful young lady from Mil-
ledgeville and has four darling little girls. His success as a chemical en-
gineer has been very encouraging indeed. He is now trying to discover why
Milledgeville drinking water is muddy. He has also advanced several theo-
ries as to why ice freezes at the North Pole. His book entitled, "Why the
Milky Way Has Never Turned to Clabber," has gained him a name that will
rank him with Shakespeare, Dante and other eminent writers throughout the
ages to come.
R. P. Mikell: Bob is the head of The Mikell "Blondineing" Company.
He has made a great deal of money among the Ethiopians in the south. He
guarantees that one bottle of this magic fluid will make the blackest African
as white as snow. He has also invented a machine that will make kinky hair
straight. His marvelous soap that will make the skin as soft as horse hide
has also netted him great profits.
A. L. Moore : Alton is a very rich man. He and Berner Tingle went in
business together and purchased that noted corporation now called the Moore
and Tingle Tanlac Company. On all sign boards and advertisements you
may see these two posing. Alton represents the patient before taking Tanlac
and Berner represents him after taking Tanlac. They warrant that it only
takes three bottles to produce this wonderful change. Their motto is : Money
back if not satisfied.
G. W. Parrish : Wayne is keeper for the animals at the New York zoo.
He makes a specialty of training monkeys. His manner of training is a
rather unusual but a very effective one. He simply hypnotizes the creatures
and then commands them to comply with his wishes. It is rumored he made
love to one of the females while under his hypnotic power and was sur-
prised at the way she responded to his tender caresses.
LoviCK Pierce: Lovick on account of his great beauty and handsome
form is now in the Ziegfield Follies of Brown's crossing. He has such win-
ning ways that the girls of the great metropolis have gone wild over him. I
have heard he is a great home wrecker, but we hope this report is false; for
Lovick did not strike us as being that kind of boy.
0. F. Pittman: Otho has cultivated his dancing and is now considered
one of the best dancers in the United States. He has accepted a position as
dancing teacher for the king of Mesepotania's daughter. It is a life-long job,
for she is said to be as graceful as a sea-lion.
Helen Riley: Helen is now in the moving pictures. She was origin-
ally with the Mack Sennett Scenario Company but has now succeeded Theda
Bara in the Paramount Company. She has succeeded in performing a most
marvelous feat she has vamped the noted Bill Rowland.
W. J. Rowland: Bill is nothing but a star gazer. We may see his as-
tronomical work published in the Dodson's Livertone Almanac. Bill's fa-
vorite star is Venus from whom he has learned a great deal on the subject
of love. Helen had a hard task when she caught Bill, but she finally suc-
ceeded. They live on Pikes Peak, so Bill will be near his work.
Nell Sims: Nell is the leading suffragette in the United States. She is
to run against Belk Coggin for President in the next election. We are afraid
Belk will have a hard time defeating her; for she not only has a brilliant
mind, but also has such exquisite beauty that we are quite sure all the men
will vote for her.
C. F. Stiles: Clifford has gone upon a large hunting expedition into
Australia to capture a very ferocious animal commonly known to man as a
squirrel. He has also threatened to bring back the hide of a wild Ukelele.
We hope he will not become injured in this dangerous undertaking.
S. L. Stembridge: Sidney Lee is now a thriving farmer and dairyman.
He has bought a large number of green glasses for his cattle. He feeds them
excelsior; so he must be contemplating going into the lumber business.
J. B. Tingle: I have now come to a weighty subject. Tingle having
been appointed dog-catcher for the city of Milledgeville is now running a
weiner stand which is netting him great profits.
Clyde Veal: Clyde has married one of the richest men in the world,
viz: Berner Tingle. They live a life of simplicity on Riverside Drive, New
York. Any member of the class is always welcome to visit their happy home.
F. Walker: Flem is at Monte Carlo. He rakes in the cold cash as easy
as he used to at G. M. C. Having learned the art well while he was in school.
W. M. Warren: Wilbur's dream has come true. I see the little log
cabin in the woods near the shimmering lake! 'Tis a moonlight night, and
there paddling a canoe I see his graceful form. She is sitting by him, and as
he looks down into her eyes of blue, surely he must think, "this is perfect
A. D. Williams: Dick is in this very city on his honeymoon, having
married late in life, and after a very interesting career in different parts of
the world where he had won both fame and fortune. After achieving for him-
self a place in the hall of fame, and winning enormous wealth through the
publication of his twenty volumes on "How to Overcome Your Bashfulness,"
he returned to Milledgeville and found his boyhood sweetheart still waiting
for him with every confidence that he would some day muster up sufficient
courage to pop the question. Just how so brilliant and handsome a man es-
caped for all these years only to fall victim to the darts of Cupid at last, his-
tory doth not record.
"All is well that ends well."
"Class Poem" 1921
Dear Classmates, we have climbed near the top of our hill,
To a spot where we rest for a-bye — -
While we sort out our treasures and look far below —
At the things that eluded our eye.
Far in the school's recesses withdrawn.
Old school books sit in sulleness and gloom,
And most excellent lessons gone
Lie deep within the shadows of the school-room.
History, with all its charms —
Spanish, Latin, Trigonometry, that almost bows us to the ground,
And last of all the "Class Poem" of 1921
Will glide to thy dim realms and will be bound.
Thou hast several of my best years.
Thou hast my earlier woes — fractions — -
And 'rithmetic sums yielded to thee with tears.
Composition blots, and all sorts of school day distractions.
'Tis come at last, the time when we must part —
An hour of sadness? Yes, perhaps 'tis so,
For months and years —
All hand in hand
We've trod the path 'til now the parting of the ways
Revels for us a distant, untried land.
'Tis our lot to tread its winding ways,
To share its griefs, to taste its joys awaiting us in distant days.
School days were our May-time, our youth-time, our best time for work.
Have we cherished this time on the way?
While we whisper our thanks to our dear faithful guides,
Have we followed their guidance each day?
At the foot of a hill, wisdom's broad temple stands;
As pilgrims from her, we were sent.
She gave us like baskets and bade us search well,
And to gather each step as we went.
For mix't with the stones, that bestrew our steep path — ■
There are jewels, unseen at a glance,
And strange these are fewer the higher we climb,
And these few are gotten by chance — ■
And strange too, whenever we stoop for a gem,
We find a flower unseen before.
And the gem is enlapped, in the roots it keeps moist.
While the blooms we seek, blossom no more.
Thus wisdom has given us baskets at first —
Higher up, opportunities thin ;
And she who stoops soonest, soonest gains her mind's store,
And bedecks all with joys that are twin.
While we who have dallied along our bright way.
And gathered its poppies alone;
Who have waited to seek for the gems further on.
Will find, to our grief, few or none.
And our subtle mind baskets that spoil from misuse
By play are both injured and torn
While the petal lost corymbs, and few gems we find
Are lost through the rents that we've worn.
Then let us take heed to this parable friends,
While yet there are heights we may gain;
With Time's golden thread, we may mend the sad rents
And gather the gems that remain.
We view the new charm of the down-sloping hill
And think of the happy time sped
Our Youth-time, our May-time, our best time — good-bye!
We must on.
With the past, thou hast fled.

When you first meet Link you get the im-
pression that he is quiet and unassuming, but
in Link's case the first impression is by no
means a lasting one.
He is a most inveterate smoker, his favorite
brand being Camels. New Camel ads are
always first detected by him, and he points
them out proudly to his friends. Link is a
most diligent student and ranks as one of the
many Commercial sharks.
But despite all his faults, Link is a most
likable chap, as it is utterly impossible to
come in personal contact with him without
becoming closely attached to him.
We predict for him a brilliant and success-
ful business life.

Second Class History.
;T is with a feeling of incompetence that I attempt to show the
virtues and achievements of our class, but it is my purpose to
portray to you the history we have made and some of the prob-
lems before us.
We have several in our class who can go back with pleasant
memories into our by-gone school days and again enjoy being with our be-
loved teachers, and thank them for their untiring patience in helping us form
a foundation upon which to build later.
We journeyed on and finally became Sub-Freshmen. As we gazed about,
we found quite a few new faces which seem to add new strength and zeal, and
with steadfast determination we started upon the sparkling sea of Algebra,
Latin, and Literature. It was not long before we fell in line with the older
classmen and rejoiced that we helped compose the "Upper Classes."
At last half way. To us there seemed abeckoning, "Onward, Forward,
Sophomores, you are no longer a mere subject for ridicule. Your big
brothers will soon have gone. Do not turn back, you must fill their places.
"At this period we began to realize that we really did have an important part
to play in the future history of "our Dear Old School."
It has been said, "A Junior knows, but doesn't know that he knows;" so
this is the only difference between the Seniors and ourselves. They know
and realize it, but we must spend another year of realization. As Juniors,
we were greeted with an entire new Faculty, but were consoled when we
found so many new faces to combat the atrocities of our new Masters. How-
ever this was not the case. They were found to be human — not sarcastic
creatures following a pair of glasses — and soon became the friends of every-
one. Of course, it took a short time in order that we might learn each other
better and resume the routine of school life. More than ever, the Juniors
took the initiative, and we now have more Commissioned Officers than any
previous class. An active part in athletics is held by the Juniors. As for the
Histronic Art, much good material is numbered among our comrades, and
we are also well represented in the Band. Our scholastic record may be
compared with any class, and you will see the Juniors at the top.
We, the Juniors of '21, sincerely hope that our efforts will be of avail
and with the "Passing of the Seniors," may we be inspired with the same
loyal, faithful, and obedient spirit hope to gain heights not reached before.

Sophomore Class History.
fJlUE HISTORY of the Sophomore Class of 1920-21 is one of which
all its members may be proud. We have learned that history is
no longer a record of past events but a treatise of present events
and conditions; so we will not dwell long on the past history.
We were once Sub-Freshmen of course, and proud of the
fact, also we were the laughing-stock of the student body; for we did not
know the knocks and crooks of college life. We thought we were bright
students but the more we learned, the more we discovered our ignorance.
As time rolled by we left Sub-Freshman Class and entered Freshman
Class. Quickly we began to catch on to the knocks and crooks of college life.
In spite of Latin and Algebra, many made the required average and were
placed on the gold-star list. Just as we are ready to take a peek at the lan-
guage Caesar spoke so fluently, Sophomore calls us and we can tarry no
We have now reached the golden age in the caller of the present Soph-
omore class; because we know we have the hardest curriculum in school.
With the coming of new teachers, just out of college, we have new ideas of

to learn, so it seems to us.
Almost daily a quizz for tomorrow greets our ears and this being a
promise and not a threat is never broken. But in spite of this we admire and

In conclusion may I for all the Sophomores extend our best wishes to
the Freshman Class for their succession to the future Sophomore Class of
G. M. C; for G. M. C. must grow and grow. It is the Sophomores that will
make this possible.

Freshman Class History.
ELL, here we are, seeing you all again, finding ourselves in the
same place but not the same position that we were in when our
History appeared last year. We are larger and stronger both
mentally and physically than when we saw you last. How
strange it seems that so many things have happened since then.
Our class is smaller, and hardly as cheerful as it was then, although in
this you may not agree with me. The old saying, "The more the merrier"
holds good especially in our case as we are grieving over the faces that we
see no more, and also of the fact that our class has dwindled down to the
small hand-full that we have today. But nevertheless, we are still willing to
look forward to the three years more which we hope to spend at G. M. C.
"Now listen," say some, "don't you hear the world calling and taking
our Seniors from us; don't sit there and grieve." The world is in a hurry;
so there is no time for that. And as we leave you again, we wish you luck
and assure you of the fact that we will give you a warmer greeting next year;
for we are fast becoming accustomed to our new surroundings.

Christmas we were content with our new position and happy in the realization
that there was still much for us to learn. Since our time here has been very
short, our history must be proportionately short and most of it must turn
with a prophetic glance toward the future where we can already see our-
selves. We realize that year by year the classes above us must drop off, and
some day the time will come when we must take on the responsibilities of
Seniors. May we so work now that when that day comes we will be trained

Commercial Class History.
ROM all sections of the grand old state they come for the pur-
pose of acquiring knowledge in the Commercial Class of G. M. C.
Everyone was eager to make a big splash in the pool of learning
and to reach the realms of the business world.
When the ladder still has more steps to climb, there is al-
ways eagerness to reach the zenith, and this whole Commercial Class of 1920-
21 expects to join those that have gone before them in the heights of the busi-
In the societies all have shown an unfailing spirit and have taken active
and prominent parts. Some have spoken with eloquence and ability, and
some day G. M. C. may be able to point with pride to some great senators
coming from her ranks.
All the Commercial Classes before us have shown great ability in ath-
letics, and this class is another link added to the chain which we hope will
never be broken.
Prosperity lies in the future, and we all expect the training we are get-
ting at G. M. C. to enable us to grasp it.

If you keep your head when all about you
Are loosing theirs and blaming it on you.
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowances for their doubting too;-
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting
Or being lied about, don't deal in liea
Or being hated don't give way to hating
And yet don't look too good and don't talk too wise.
If you can dream — and not make dreams your master;
If you can think — and not make thoughts your aim.
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you have spoken
Twisted by knaves to make trap for fools.
Or watch the thing you gave your life to, broken
And stoop to build them' up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And loose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your nerve, your heart, and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone.
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue.
Or walk with kings — nor loose the common touch.
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you.
If all men count with you but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it.
And — which is more — You'll be a man my son!

HE Corps of Cadets at G. M. C. is one of the best in the South,
and it by far exceeds the majority of other preparatory schools
of the state. Not only is the close order drill executed with the
greatest precision, but the extended order drill is like clock work.
The United States Government, in the fall of 1916, intro-
duced an infantry unit of the Reserve Officers Training Corps, at Georgia
Military College, and has equipped it with everything that is necessary to
successful military training. On the march and in camp, cadets are taught in
the same manner as our great army in the field. Two inspections have been
made this year by a government inspector, and on both occasions, the student
body has been highly complimented on its excellent work.
Military training at this institution is modeled after West Point in every
possible way, and discipline prevails in the strictest sense of the word. As
force was the order of the day during the French Revolution, so is discipline
the order of the day at G. M. C, and in comparison with the other institu-
tions of the south in drill, discipline, and courtesy, we place ourselves second
W. J. Rowland.
THOMAS HERBERT BONNER
Coach Bonner, a veteran of Auburn has attained unusual success in the
many forms of college athletics. At Auburn he gained a place in the hearts
of the student body as well as in the hearts of the sport lovers of the South.
Since his arrival here, he has shown that same ability, and by his devotion to
his duties he has won the admiration of the entire student body.
There has been a lack of material in all the forms of college athletics
this year, and it is only due to the fact that we had a coach so well trained,
a coach with such rare ability that we could attain what seemed to be im-
possible. No one could have brought the athletics of G. M. C. to such a
standard, no one could have made excellent teams out of entirely raw ma-
terials had he not possessed the determination and the courage to face defeat
in the present that he might win out in the long run. With this spirit of
fight that has characterized him, he has succeeded in making a success that
will only be surpassed by himself, he has brought his teams of entirely raw
material up to the standard, and by his services the college will continue to
prosper in this line of endeavor.
Coach Bonner has a great influence that is felt in the entire student body.
Certainly every boy who has been under him, or has come in contact with
him in any way has felt his personality. In the days to come, when we shall
look back over our school days here at G. M. C, we will realize that he was a
man among men. Then we will say as Shakespeare said,
"This was a man."
Charles W. Edwards
The Scrubs always directly affect the Varsity, and a good Sci'ub team generally
means a good Varsity. In football under the superb leadership of Coach Edwards,
there were a bunch of scrubs almost as good as the Varsity, in fact many of the boys
who at the first of the season were on the Scrub line-up finished as Varsity men. This
was not so very hard under the excellent coaching of Coach Edwards, for he had had
many experiences as a player and a coach.
To Coach Edwards much credit is due. It is with a spirit of increasing admiration
that we refer to his untiring efforts in behalf of the Scrub team, which directly aided
the Varsity to make the success it did. He has at all times been one of the boys and
has seemed to feel their disappointments, to experienc(i their hardships, and it is with
much gratitude that we express the pleasure in having had him as one of our coaches.
We wish to tell him that he has won a dear place in our hearts.
Colonel Robert Grant Cousley
Our foot ball team last fall was made up almost entirely of men with little or no
experience on the gridiron. With such material — if success is to be attained — it is
necessary to have leaders who thoroughly understand the game, and are willing to devote
their time and energy to the work of building up a team, such a man was Col. Cousley.
He was to be seen almost every afternoon out on the field of battle, and when
there was a scrimmage he was generally in the thick of it telling some one what to do,
how to do it, and why.
Col. Cousley is not only a great athlete himself, with much experience, but has
that rarer faculty of imparting his knowledge to others, and at least three of the
varsity owe their success to him.
Whatever fortune the future may hold for the teams at G. M. C. they will always
owe much to this fighter for clean athletics.
W. M. Morrison
Maj. Morrison came to us from Washington & Lee where he was a brilliant track
man, as well as an excellent basketball player. Since his arrival here he has shown
that he not only knows how to do himself, but that he can also tell and show others
how to do. In other words, he is an excellent coach, and the school is to be compli-
mented on obtaining his services.
Before Christmas even Maj. Morrison could be seen almost any place where there
was a basketball, from the Boy Scout, and Company teams to the basketball squad
itself. He is a real basketball enthusiast.
If at the beginning of the season we had had a little more material from which to
pick. Coach Bonner, with the assistance of Maj. Morrison, would no doubt have made
a team that would not have had a peer among the teams of the preparatory schools of
■:!#»■'■;. -^.■sc^-r;* ^r.
At Coach Bonner's call for football volunteers last Fall, there was a very
husky bunch of boys that reported the first day, each with the fond hope of
making the team and being a star. However, many were destined to be very
disappointed, for there were only a few that had ever had any experience in
the gridiron game, and not so very many who had even seen a game. They
were entirely new men as far as football was concerned, and this was very
apparent during the first few days of the practices. The prospects were very
slim, and it was only the determination and courage of our faithful Coach
that carried us through those trying days of this part of our season.
However, in a few weeks Coach Bonner with the aid of Major Edwards
and Colonel Cousley had whipped into shape a team worthy of G. M. C. They
had accomplished the impossible, for they had made an excellent team out
of men some of whom had never seen a game of football, and others who had
had no experience; there being only two who had ever played in a Varsity
Much credit is due Coach Bonner for the excellent team that he made.
He knew the game through and through and was a capable imparter of his
knowledge ; for he would show the men how to do as well as tell them. It
was with a spirit of love that the boys fought for him, for they all felt the in-
fluence of his personality and the keen magnetism of his person.
To some our football season may seem a failure but in more than one
way it has been a great success. The green men that began the season grad-
ually became veterans of the game and each game showed an improvement
over the one before it. It is this that shows our success — the fact that we
steadily improved from the first to the last. No doubt if it had been possible
to start the Season off with the men as they ended, it would had been a team
without a peer in the state.
To an old student who is used to winning, and who has G. M. C. cred-
ited with a long line of victories, it seems hard indeed to see the record of
last Fall's games, but with the new ideal of honor that has been established
in the school it was absolutely necessary to suffer seeming defeat in the pres-
ent that we might win in the long race. This was done, but the team is to be
complimented on the creditable showing that it made during the season.
Every student feels proud of the fact that it was possible to make a team
worthy of G. M. C. when everything pointed to the fact that it was impossible.
The first game of the season was played with Madison A. & M. on our
own gridiron. It was a very hard fought game and each team showed excel-
lent form. It was noted on our side that the boys had already felt that
G. M. C. spirit of fight, that means fighting until the sound of the last
whistle. The score was 19-13 in their favor. Although every man worked
hard, it seemed that it was impossible to push over more than two touch-
downs, one being bucked over by Warren and the other being made by Reid
on a brilliant criss-cross run of ten yards.
The second game of the season was played in a slow drizzle and on a
field wet and muddy. However it was an excellent game, the score being
7-0 in favor of Tifton A. & M. Both sides are to be commended on their fine
playing and cleanliness of sport. It was a very good game and each team
fought hard to pile up a larger score. Reid featured for G. M. C., and by
his superb leadership as quarter-back it was possible for us to gain steadily,
although we never came within striking distance of the goal.
The team of Douglas A. & M. was the only team played last fall that
really outclassed us, and although our boys worked hard and fought to the
finish, it seemed that we could not hold them. The score was 21-0.
The fourth game of the season was played with Bailey Military Institute
rmined bunch of boys that left here
the morning of November 4th, for Greenwood, and indeed it was destined to
be a glorious trip for a few of the boys at least. Upon their arrival in Green-
wood, they were escorted up to the hotel which was soon found to be a place
of ease and leisure. Here the members of the team were entertained the
evening after the game by a few of the select young ladies of the city. Cer-
tainly, everyone enjoyed the evening for it was a pleasurable one. The game
itself was an interesting one although Bailey won with a score 17-0. At least
a few of the members of the team are looking forward to their second visit
to Greenwood. Fowler, Slack and Butts were the star men.
G. M. C. returned to her old-time football form when she defeated the
fast team of Dahlonega 7-0. It was an excellent game and one of the best of
the season. Baisden in the line and Fowler and Howard in the backfield
were the outstanding men. Howard scored the touchdown with a five-yard
buck following two very brilliant runs.
The Thanksgiving game was one of much interest, and aroused much
spirit through the city. However after a hard fought battle we lost to Locust
Grove Institute, the score being 7-6. It was only due to the fact that there
were several fumbles that we lost, and even then it was only a matter of luck,
as the members of the Locust Grove team admitted.
With Coach Bonner, Maj. Edwards and Col. Cousley all back on the
job next year, and with the number of this year's team that are sure to return,
it is a safe prediction that the team that represents G. M. C. next year will be
at the top of the pile at the end of the season and weeping because there are
no other worlds to conquer. With this combination, G. M. C. is sure to start
again her long line of victories.
Baisden (Tackle) : Baisden was always in the thick of the fight. He
never let up fighting and in more than one game made an excellent showing.
He is a good punter and did most of the punting for the team. He was al-
ways a fine tackier and a terror to opposing backs.
0. 0. Banks (Guard) : Olen always had the goods, and he certainly was
a hard fighter. He made a creditable showing all during the season, and was
a wonderful linesman. We wish for Olen as great a success in all his en-
deavors as he made here in football.
W. E. Bass (Tackle) : Bass made a good showing the entire season as a
linesman, and in the future no doubt he will make a greater success and gain
a greater fame as a gridiron star.
J. W. Black (Halfback) : Black was a fine running partner for the
other backs. Besides being a good bucker, he was excellent on end runs
and a splendid man for interference.
Wallace Butts (End) : Wallace our youngest athlete was a wonder
at end and was always a terror to the opposing backs. He started off on the
Scrubs, but was soon seen to be too good a man to be there and so was imme-
diately placed on the Varsity. Some of Col. Cousley's ability is reflected in
him for Colonel always seemed to be specially interested in him. This I
suppose is one of the reasons for his wonderful success this year.
Fred Dunn (Guard) : Fred showed that fighting spirit that has always
characterized G. M. C. and the college that gets him in the future is to be
complimented. Here's to you Fred.
Frank Dunn (Elnd) : Frank is a fine man to tear up interference and
is a good tackier. No doubt he will win unusual fame in the near future.
At first he was a Scrub but hard work and fight put him where he really
Will Fowler (Halfback) : Fowler was a fine back, fast as lightning,
and therefore a fine end runner. He was not only a fine man to carry the
ball, but was also a good man to run interference.
H. B. EvERlDGE (Tackle) : Buzz is one of the best men on the team. He
always fights to the last. No doubt he will show up in even greater form next
year, and we will certainly all be glad to to see him back. He will be one
of the leading men next year and will win even more succ^ ss then than he
did this year.
J. D. Howard (Fullback and End) : Jimmie has a push and drive that
will go through most anything. He was a terror to opposing linesmen, who
always had a great respect for his ability. Jimmie's ambition is to be on the
Georgia Football and Basketball team, and he will certainly succeed if he
continues at the rate he is going.
G. G. Reid (Quarterback) : Garland was a superb leader, and it was
due to his generalship that we were able to fight so much. He always led
his men by example, and was an excellent player himself. Reid has been
elected alternate captain of next year's team and no doubt he will show great
A. E. Slack (Center) : Slack has been selected by the student body as
the best football player of the season, and he rightly deserves the position.
He was always in the thick of the fight, and had an excellent pass, as well as
a sure one. He kicked most of the goals after touchdowns. He was also an
excellent man on the defensive and probably played his best game in Green-
wood against Bailey. He has been elected captain of next year's team and
will be back in fine form and we all wish to see him play his best.
C. F. Stiles (Guard) : Stiles was a fine man on the defensive, and was
good at opening up holes for the backs to go through. In the future Stiles
will surely reflect credit on the school by his brilliant playing.
J. M. Thomas (Halfback) : Joe was one of the best backfield men pro-
duced this year. He is fast and an excellent man to carry the ball. He was
good on receiving forward passes. Good luck to you Joe.
W. J. WiLKiNS (Halfback) : Pee Wee was a fine back, playing his best
game with Dahlonega in which he showed that he was fast and good at run-
ning interference. He always had the G. M. C. fighting spirit, and possessed
rare ability as a player.
M. HiNES (Tackle and Center) : Madison was a very good linesman and
has made a very creditable showing this season. He has fought like a Trojan
and has been crowned with success. He was also a very good center and had
a fine pass.
Wilbur Warren (Captain)
Perhaps the greatest record of the team and one of which any team
might well be proud, was their extremely clean playing and gentlemanly con-
duct on the field, and for this record a large measure of credit is due our lion
hearted full back Wilbur Warren.
Reporting late — due to sickness during the summer — his determination
and never say die spirit, soon won for him the proud distinction of Captain
of the team; this same spirit was destined later to prove a tower of strength
to the team in their many trials, and in fancy we can see his determined face
even now, and hear his cheering remark, "That's all right, fellows, play
It is a sad thought to the team, as well as to the entire student body,
that his name will not be on the roster of G. M. C. another year; however our
loss will be some one's gain, as he will move up to a higher school, and we
can console ourselves with the thought, that he gave us his best while with us,
and that some day we will read great things about his prowess on the grid-
iron of some university; so we all join in our good wishes for his future
By Sergeant Reese.
It is always necessary to have a Scrub team if there is to be a good
Varsity. Much credit is due the Scrubs for the making of the Varsity;
'! for they were at all times faithful and unitring in their efforts. They fought
like Trojans and many of them gave the Varsity men the scare of their lives
for the positions that they held. At this time we want to compliment the
members of the Scrub team who toiled faithfully from the start to the finish
that there might be a real Varsity, that G. M. C. should be well represented
in the football circles of the state. We certainly admire them and we feel
that we should take this opportunity to express to them our heart-felt thanks.
The football classic of the season was played when the Scrubs under the
I excellent leadership of Captain Robinson met in deathly struggle with the
Varsity under Captain Warren. It was a wonderful game and each of the
two teams fought from the start to the finish, although it seemed that the
Scrubs held the upper edge for the final score was 13-6 in their favor. It
was one of the many times that the Scrubs showed rare ability as football
To the following members of the Scrub team who fought from the first of the
season to the last we wish to extend our sincerest thanks, and in the future we wish
for them the greatest success that each desires.

To some, our basketball team this year may spell disaster, but to those who know
and understand the conditions, as we do, may well appreciate our team, and we may
say its a success.
None of last year's letter men were back, consequently the team had to be made
of entirely new material. At the beginning of the season their defeats were regular,
and the scores large, but each game showed an improvement over the other, until
finally the scores became low and close. Even the champions of the G. I. A. A. were
hardly a match for the G. M. C. quintet.
All this goes to show the ability that Coach Bonner and Maj. Morrison have
of making an excellent team out of comparatively nothing. They are to bei compli-
mented on their success which is great though seemingly little, and indeed the mem-
bers of the team itself are to be congratulated on their success.
Much of the credit and praise that oar team has won is due to Capt. Ingram.
'"Shorty" came to us last year, played hard and consistently the whole season, and
was one of the leading scrubs. It was only due to the fact that G. M. C. possessed
material far above the average that he did not make his letter then. This year as
Captain he has led his men in truth and reality, and by his excellent playing and
superb leadership the team has improved wonderfully.
Most of the members of this year's squad will be back next year, and the prospects
are very bright for the basketball team of 1922.
JiMMiE D. Howard (Guard)
Jimmie fights all the time, never lets up, and is always on the run. There are only
a few forwards that put anything over him last season. He will be back next year,
and everybody that saw him perform knows that he can deliver the goods. Jimmie's
ambition is to play on the football and basketball teams of Georgia, and no doubt he
will, some time in the near future.
Wallace Butts (Guard)
Wallace is our youngest athlete, but is one of the best and no doubt will be the
best long before he leaves us. He succeeded very well in football, and up until the
time he was laid out he was making an excellent success in basketball. We regret
very much that he was unable to finish the season with us, and indeed G. M. C. lost
a fine man when he was taken sick.
Mat Hines (Center)
Mat is a hard worker and never seems to get tired. He has made a wonderful
showing this year, and with a little more experience he will make a remarkable player.
Max Dorsett (Forward)
Max is an excellent forward, and in his playing this year has shown good training.
In the future, with a little fight, which Max surely has, he will no doubt win great
Alton Moore (Forward)
Little but loud, Alton makes a fine running partner for the Ingram our other
forward. He is an extra good shot at the goal, and will certainly win fame and
fortune as a basketball player.
Buzz Everidge (Center)
Buzz has been one of the most valuable men on the team this year, and he deserves
much credit for the work that he has done. He is an excellent center and a good
jumping man. In every game you may be sure that he will have his share of the
Lawrence Bennett (Guard)
Bennett has developed into one of the best guards on the list and has made a
very creditable showing on the court this year. He is fast and has always been a
terror to the opposing forwards.
(Captain) Kemp Ingram (Forward)
Shorty is the only man of this year's team who had ever played any basketball at
G. M. C. before, and he has at all times been a very good Captain for the men under
He is very fast and a wonder as a forward. We will not be surprised if in the
future we hear that Ingram, the Captain of our 1920 basketball team, is the captain
of some great Collegiate team, leading it to victory. Our wishes for success are
with you ""Shorty."

ND now we turn our eyes to baseball, the last hope of the season.
Although most of the material is green, we may justly say that
the prospects for a good baseball team are bright; for the can-
^^^1^^^ didates are hard workers and under the experienced coaching of
Coach Bonner we feel sure that we will turn out a wonderful
There is only one letter-man back this year, S. M. Johnson, who is now
holding down short in first-class style. Johnson is an accurate fielder and a
consistant hitter. We cannot help but feel that as the season progresses he
will be blazing the trail for his team-mates.
Up to the present time the Varsity has not been selected and the squad
is still large. However, the following men have made excellent showing at
their respective places:
Catchers: Thomas and Holland are both hard workers and know the
game well. We feel satisfied that they will take care of the position behind
the bat in a manner most commendable.
At first base we have Brown and Griffith. Brown is of the slugger type
and is covering his place in wonderful style.
"Pee Wee" Wilkins and "Doc" Pierce are both trying hard for second
base. Each is showing up well, and both have had considerable experience.
Wilkins is very fast, and we shall be disappointed if at the end of the season
he does not have several stolen bases to his credit.
C. D. Holland is at third and shows considerable experience. He is
a sure fielder, and very dangerous at the bat.
In right field, we have Sledge Tatum, who is a natural slugger and
a wonderful fielder. In center field, we have Garland Reid and Frank
Dunn. Reir was a Scrub last year and is showing up well this year.
Reid has speed on Dunn, but Dunn is no doubt the better hitter. In left
field, we have "Sailor Boy" Poe, who is a great all-round player, and we
feel sure that he will be a source of worry to opposing pitchers this fall.
For pitchers we have "Lefty" Walker and Martin Holland, both of
whom are more than capable of holding down their positions. They
have been tried, tested, and proven, and we feel sure that too much can
not be said of their ability. With these two excellent men on our line-up,
it is almost certain that we can give any team in the G. I. A. A., a hard
fight even if we do not win.
It would be unjust to pass over our 1921 baseball team without com-
plimenting our second team, which has already shown excellent services
in the making of the Varsity. They are full of pep, and are giving valu-
able aid in the practice games. They are the prospects of our future
teams, and have already shown that they possess rare ability.

VooK AT P '
ERETOFORE G. M. C. has been barred from the track meets
of this Congressional District, but now that she is in the G. I.
A. A., she will have the opportunity to show the ability of
the students in that line. Some time in April or May there is
to be a Track meet of the different institutions that are mem-
bers of the G. I. A. A. at some place to be decided upon later. Of course
this will be the final view of the track teams — to win the largest number
of points at this meet, but now at the present everyone has turned his eyes
toward the meet between the different companies which will be held April
At present, no one has as yet started training for the events; but no
doubt in a few days, there will be a number of boys to don their track
uniforms who will be seen doing cross-country running for wind, and prac-
ticing the different things for skill. The company teams will begin work-
ing out some time in the near future, and the meet betwen them will be
held as a kind of preliminary for the G. I. A. A. meet later in the Spring.
As yet nothing definite can be said as to the material present in school,
but it is very evident that there are a number of good track men from the
fact that a good many boys who won first and second places on Field Day
of last year are back, and are sure to work hard for the same honors this
year. Then there are quite a few who have been noted in the Physical
drills and games held by Col. Cousley in the military department.
The school is to be complimented on the fact that she obtained such an
able coach as Maj. Morrison, who is to be head coach of the track team.
Maj. Morrison is a good track man himself, having made a great success
at Washington & Lee where he showed himself to be an excellent long-
distance runner, and a good sprinter. Since he has been with us we also
know that he possesses that rare ability of being capable of imparting his
knowledge to others. Under his leadership and good guidance, and by
his faithful and unceasing efforts G. M. C. should be able to mould into
shape a team that will not only equal, but surpass those of the other schools
of our class in the state.

HE biggest hit of the season for Milledgeville by semi-pro-
fessional actors was played by the members of G. M. C.'s
Dramatic Club. The remarkable ability of these actors was
portrayed to the public in their latest play, "A Woman's
Honor;" which created quite a sensation throughout the state.
The play was a high class one in every respect and played in a high class
The following were the cast:
General Mark Lester (Hero of Cuban War) . . . . A. B. Coggin
Pedro Mendez — (His half brother) Lovick Pierce
Dr. Garcia — (Surgeon of the Madeleine) C. H. Home
Gilbert Hall, M. D. — (In love with Olive) Lovick Alfriend

J Nell Simms
) .Helen Riley
Lt. Williams, the hero of the day, was remarkably successful in carry-
ing out the leading part with its many romantic scenes. He was more than
satisfactorily supported by Helen Riley with her many lingering ditties.
Nell Simms along with Coggin kept the audience well guessing, while
Lovick Alfriend made occasional bids for Nell's love but never with
much effect. We can remember the serious touch that these three added
long after the lighter parts have faded.
Home with his double roll played the part of an eccentric banker
and that of a Spaniard as if he had a taste for the real thing. Cylde
Veal, as the wife of a cunning half breed, played her, part in a way that
made every moment a pleasure. Lovick Pierce as the scheming half breed,
always envious of his half brother, carried out his part splendidly.
The whole life and pep of the play was furnished by Tingle as the
rich banker's butler. He never failed to make you laugh.
The Allegorical Pageant "King Cotton" was presented at the Opera
House in Milledgeville, Thursday night, February 24th, under the auspices
of G. M. C, to one of the largest and most enthusiastic crowds that ever
assembled in Milledgeville. The Pageant consisted of a play in which
the cotton grower's system of farming was splendidly illustrated. The
boll weevil, the single cropper, the tenant system, diversity and the other
elements which go into the farmer's line of business were impersonated
by the characters on the stage in a most forceful manner. In the end,
the boll weevil was killed, and Prince Diversification and Princess Pros-
perity wed and live happily ever after.

The performance consisted of three acts, the first, "The Court of King
Cotton," the second and third, "The Garden of the King."
The lesson which the play taught was very impressive and at the same
time very laughable. Between the acts were specialties, among the best
ever seen here, including the Virginia Reel and an old time negro cake
The king and his retinue appeared gorgeously costumed while the or-
chestra played the overture of "Southern Melodies," and the national hymns
of all the countries which completed the setting.
The dances were an absolute novelty and lent a real Southern atmos-
phere which carried the audience back to the "good old days."
The pageant was thoroughly enjoyed by all present, and the cast
received high commendation for the excellent interpretation of the rules.

"When we Forget."
When we forget the dear old school
That we have to leave today,
We shall forget what laughter is
And what true lovers say.
When we forget old G. M. C,
When we are far away some night,
We shall forget the warmth of home
Of hearth and candle light.
When we forget these class-rooms dear
Wherein our time must end,
We shall forget what friendship means
And the value of a friend.
We shall forget the face of love
The sound of mirth and song
When we forget the dear old school
Where we were glad so long.
"Send it In."
If you have a bit of news.
Send it in;
Or a joke that will amuse
Send it in;
A story that is true,
An incident that is new,
We want to hear from you —
Send it in.
Never mind about the style,
If the news is worth the while,
It will help, or cause a smile.
Send it in.

EXTRACTS FROM A CO-ED'S NOTE
If a man kisses you on the forehead
it shows that he admires your brains.
(This must be why so few men do this.)
If he kisses you on the cheek it shows
that he is not afraid of lead poisoning.
If he kisses you on the chin it shows
that he is coming across the next time.
If he kisses you on, the cheek it shows
he has good taste, and he will usually
try it again.
Waiter: That order of eggs you ordered
■ — how would you like to have them?
Cadet: I would like to have them very
Co-Ed: I don't believe in running the
fashions in the ground.

R. H. Betts,
Major Edward's Love Story.
"Edwards" was in a "Little" trouble; so he thought. He went "Schoe-
flin" ofF to the river "Banks" in order to be alone. The river was "Fuller"
than ever before. It ever "Mo-ran." There was a heavy "Cloud" overhead
but the "Poe" fellow was in love and that made him feel like a sweet "Wil-
liam (s)." He seated himself on a "Craig," thinking seriously. Suddenly he
heard a "Russell" in a near-by tree, looking up he saw a "Martin" building a
nest. Had he not had a good "Holt-on" a "Reid" he would have fallen in the
"Waters" of the nearby "Ireland," for he could feel gravity "Pullen" him
down as he sat there. Then he heard a "Home" and the "Tingle" of a
"Bell." He thought at first that it was a "Shepard" but looking across the
"Holland" he saw a "Black" "Veal" which "Morrison" was driving to the
"Mayfield." He heard the "Hooten" of an owl like the "Rushin" of the waters
in River "Jordan" "Mixon" with the ocean. All he could think of was the
"Ivey" covered porch where he had stood with his sweetheart a year ago,
looking at the "Starrs." About that time "Lucky" "Rolston" came "Riden"
up on a "Cambell" bringing "Edwards" a "Cow-bel" and the news that his
fair French maiden of "DeVaris" had accepted his proposal. He was so
overjoyed that he made a "Monk" of himself as he sent forth cries of joy
thru the "Woods." In fact he fell like a "King" or a "Farmer" either. On
the first "Dajr" of "May" he sailed for her. But first he went to a "Gold-
smith" and bought a wedding ring with money he had won on different
Soon afterwards lie returned from France but was no longer a "Freeman"
as he had marched down the bright (or perhaps dark) hall of matrimony.
"Edwards' " bride's parents had been very "Slack" upon her in youth,
she therefore had no "Hobby's." But in a short time she could "Cook"
bread both "Brown" and "Dunn" just as well as any New England "Minor."
It was neither "Crumbly" nor "English" style.
Not long afterward "Bonner" found "Edwards" sitting in the very same
spot "Bowen" his head nearly to the ground and a look in his eye that would
"Pierce" "Rowland." This gave way to a "Blank" expression when asked
his trouble. He said that he was "Pondering" over the "Stiles" his wife was
"Warren" in order that she might "Kicklighter."
Returning home he found the "Door sett" open and a note in the
"Keho(l)e" saying that his wife had taken their last "Dollah" to pay the
grocer for some "Sammons" for which they "Odum."
He waited for her a while but soon got the "Rickets" and went to meet
her. They returned together about the time the "Batts" begun to fly. He
was about to "Walker" to death but they got home just as the "Parish" priest
was passing. So we last leave them with this man "A (1) friend" to all.
